The new Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1 is a less powerful — but convertible — sibling of the 15.6-inch Precision 5530 mobile workstation. Its specs are similar to those of the Dell XPS 9575, but this mobile workstation features Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL graphics and is scheduled to hit the market in July/August.

Advertised by Dell as the world's smallest 15-inch convertible workstation for professionals on the go, the new Precision 5530 2-in-1 is the same as the XPS 9575, but with Radeon Pro WX graphics added to the mix. Thanks to the ultra-thin GORE Thermal Insulation cooling, this machine can deliver the performance needed for rich content creation and editing in "an impossibly thin" design that has a 360-degree hinge which allows for multiple ways of interaction.

Although it is expected to hit the market in the second half of the summer and there is no information about its pricing yet, here are the main specs and features of the Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1: 

  • Intel Core i5-8305G/i7-8705G/i7-8706G
  • 8 GB - 16 GB DDR4 2,400 MHz onboard; 32 GB post RTS
  • 15.6-inch UltraSharp 4K Ultra HD InfinityEdge touchscreen with 100 percent Adobe RGB/full HD InfinityEdge touchscreen with 100 percent sRGB with 400 nits and 1,500:1 contrast 15.6-inch — 10-point multitouch and pen support
  • Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL with 4 GB HBM2 memory
  • up to 2 TB PCIe NVMe SSD
  • 2 x Thunderbolt 3 with PowerShare, DC-In, and DisplayPort 
  • 2 x USB Type-C 3.1 with PowerShare, DC-In, and DisplayPort 
  • Windows Hello-compliant IR camera
  • Killer 1435 802.11 ac & Bluetooth 4.1 or Intel 8265 802.11 ac & Bluetooth 4.1
  • Miracast support
  • 13.9 x 9.2 x 0.36 - 0.63 inches
  • 4.36 pounds
  • built-in 75 WHr and 130 W USB-C adapter

The list of operating system choices consists of the following 4 items: Ubuntu 16.04 SP1, Red Hat 7.5, Windows 10 Home 64, and Windows 10 Pro 64. The touchscreen display of the Dell Precision 5540 2-in-1 features Active Pen support with 4,096 levels of pressure, low latency, and tilt functionality "for an experience as close to sketching on paper as possible." The new MagLev keyboard has a reduced thickness that does not have a negative impact on the critical shortcuts essential while creating content.

Although the price of the Precision 5530 2-in-1 is not official yet, the price of the XPS 9575 — which starts at US$1,499.99 — should give us a better idea on what to expect. Obviously, the price can go well over the US$2,000 barrier, depending on the hardware and software options chosen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
